Breaking the Chain of Stereotyping. Building Student Awareness of the Effects of Sex-Role Stereotyping (Grades 7-12).
Wysong, H. Eugene
The five units for grades 7 through 12 contained in this booklet are intended to assist students in developing awareness of sex-role stereotyping barriers that they might erect and that could affect them and others as they make career-related decisions. All units are designed for groups composed of males and females. Each unit has these components: comments to instructor (purpose of unit), student objectives, a listing of required resources and materials, brief descriptions of instructional activities, and a standard unit evaluation form. Unit topics include stereotyping, peer pressure and decision making, expected levels of and reasons for employment, influence of experiences and expectations on future career choices, and people in nontraditional occupations. Appendixes include student resources and materials necessary to complete the units and results of field testing surveys. Six 8 x 10.5 inch black and white loose photographs of unidentified people employed in specific occupations for use in Unit I are also included. (YLB)
